Kelli Smith


My name is Ms. Smith and I teach 4th Grade. I am so excited to start my journey with Zumbrota-Mazeppa this year!

Prior to ZM, I taught fifth grade in the Albert Lea School District. I am originally from Adams, Minnesota. I went to Southland High School and then Winona State University where I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. Outside of the classroom, you can find me outside either hiking, swimming, or playing with my dogs. When I am indoors, you can always find me reading a good book!

This year, I am teaching Reading. I am very passionate about all subjects, but Reading has always been my favorite! Mrs. Braithwaite teaches Science, Mr. Cordes teaches Math, and Mr. Paukert teaches Social Studies and Accelerated Math. Here is the link to our protopage:

I'm looking forward to a fantastic year!
